Pink peony



I received some wonderful pictures taken by Al Procyshyn (the husband of my friend Verona), of the
peonies in his yard. They said to me (the peonies) - please thread paint me - so I am doing just that.

Al takes wonderful pictures and Verona has shared them with me so that I can use them as subjects for some of my wall hangings. Here is a work in progress , one of the beautiful peonies from their garden. I hope to incorporate it into a floral wall hanging which is new territory for me. I hope you like it , I have a couple of roses that I will do too and then work on a way to incorporate them into a wall hanging.

Lovely photos, Shirley.

When the time is right for you, I'd love to know your process for transferring photo to fabric..... and the specific brands of materials.

For now, enjoy the process of prayer in each of your thread-painted stitches.

Hugs,
Tricia
